Every morning before I leave for work, I state what my Munchkin will eat, drink and a few other specifics for the house. When I talk of what he will drink, I just state how much water or milk he will be given but I never stop to think of the source of water. I mean, I instruct on cleaning the house, washing the dishes, clothes among other chores. Today, I am taking a minute to think about what would happen if there was no adequate supply of water. Considering I am the type who washes dishes with almost 10 litres of water, as I rinse twice. I enjoy showering, cleaning my son’s toys all the time, as I am afraid of him eating dirt. And of course I just drink water when I am thirsty.
Now stop to think, if I reached out to pour a glass of water and found there was not even a few drops left; Or I wanted to make Munchkin cerelac just before he got up and let out that hungry yawn, only to look at the tin but have no water to dilute; This would be unbelievable, it’s something I would not even imagine but worst case scenario I would go and buy some water.
In Mwiki, there are some really cool kids who have not let cerebral palsy bring them down. They are happy to be alive and being taken care of well. A group of friends and I are planning a visit in July to take them some food stuff, clothes, diapers among other things they might need. However, during our preparations, the administration at Maji Mazuri Childrens Home told us of an even more dire need, WATER. They are unable to pay their water bill which has now accumulated to Kshs. 250,000. If not settled, it could lead to them not having access to water. I am standing in the gap to help them and I would love it if you could too. Whatever you have that could help keep this kids hydrated, clean, happy and living, as indeed water is life, please share it with them.
Here is a link to our Facebook page for more information.
I will ensure that as I give orders on how much water Munchkin will drink or how his toys will be washed, that our cool kids at Maji Mazuri can have this too.
Join in and let us keep them healthy and happy.
